Bolton boss Dougie Freedman has criticised his Blackpool counterpart Paul Ince, following recent transfer speculation.

The Seasiders were recently linked with a double loan move for Wanderers duo Keith Andrews and Matt Mills, with Ince publicly declaring his interest in the players.

Freedman has responded to the recent speculation, saying he has had no contact with the Blackpool boss and he isn't happy with the way he has gone about his business.

"There's not a lot of money filtering down from the Premier League, which makes it very hard, but I'm not one of those managers living in Cloud Cuckoo Land in terms of what I'm trying to achieve," Freedman told The Bolton News.

"I don't throw names out there and then not come through. That isn't the way I go about my business.

"Paul Ince has never spoken to me. I find it very it very disrespectful that he would speak about my players. He has never made me an offer so he doesn't know, or he shouldn't know what they are earning.

"I don't know whether it's a manager being a little bit far-fetched. If he wants one of my players he can call me up.

"I'd like to sign Tom Ince, but it won't happen. It just depends on what people do with that throwaway comment."
